Ooh boy, what a long month June was and since I am writing this so late into July, I know the craziness has carried over. But, it’s really hot outside, so what better time to catch up on my monies? June was a good month. Getting some paychecks rolling in is great, and I even shoved some money into my IRA. For now let’s focus on spending in June, which finished 16 days ago… oops!
How’s it hanging fellas? I’m doing just fiiiiiiiiiine.
Oh boy, I don’t even know where I left off and so much has taken place since any last update. A month ago, my somewhat slow job search began to gain steam fast as I landed two interview within a matter of days. Fortunately, the choice between those two was easy as I was determined to be under qualified for one. So, then it was, is the new job offer good enough to depart my current job after eight years. And for many reasons, the answer was YES!
Finally some changes happening in my monthly expenses. Of course, this is not the place to read about all that jazz, so expect some more details to leak out via other posts. Being off of work for 2+ weeks has meant a little less time spent tracking spending and updating my spreadsheets. But, I think I have got everything all squared away now. Exploring financial frontiers over here.
So I recently left the job I have had for 8+ years! It was a tough decision, of course, but ultimately there were many factors leading up to this change. Things like departing bosses, departing long-time coworkers (friends) and just some general stagnation. Honestly, after that many years it was time to at least make a decent effort to see what is available.
Oops! I was so proud last time for getting the monthly expense report update out in a timely manner. But life kind of got in the way this time and I am now reporting mid-month. Lots of great things happening though, so I am not too sad for how late this is coming. So let’s get on with it, time is not waiting around.
